About Crystal King

I am a novelist (FEAST OF SORROW and THE CHEF'S SECRET), culinary enthusiast, and marketing expert. My writing is fueled by a love of history and a passion for the food, language, and culture of Italy.

However, you can upgrade to a paid subscriber to be a true patron (don’t you love the beautiful Renaissance sound of that?)—someone who loves the content I share and wants to support my ongoing creative efforts. The publishing world is a brutal one for most authors (who spend thousands of hours across the years writing and researching their books), and every little bit helps!
